Yet this legendary establishment provides some fantastic seafood
dishes like different varieties of oysters that you can wash down with some champagne at
the bar, but it also remains true to its
name with numerous different pork dishes from grilled pig's feet with béarnaise sauce,
knuckle of pork, stuffed pig's trotter, pork chops and much, much more.
Situated in the 1st Arrondissement in the Chatelet district of Paris near to The
Louvre, The Pompidou Centre and Les Halles,
you are also able to purchase some of the freshest oysters outside this restaurant in Paris.
Some of the other dishes served are a little less unusual and would be more suitable,
especially for the not so adventurous tourist, such as a shin of pork caramelised in honey
and served on a bed of sauerkraut, or grilled pork ribs with sage sauce and chips.
The dining room, with its white tablecloths and pig details dotted all over, make the
place feel cheerful with good humour and the terrace that extends into an open-plan
kitchen in the picturesque pedestrian walkway is an inviting temptation to try the
traditional French cuisine on offer.
